Press Release: 4th January 2009

Steve 'USS' Cunningham - Wants His Cruiserweight Crown Back - Returns To Training.

Former IBF cruiserweight champion, Steve 'USS' Cunningham, has returned to training at the James Shuler Memorial Gym in West Philadelphia just three weeks after losing his crown by close split-decision to Tomasz 'Goral' Adamek in what most media and fans alike described as one of the Fights Of The Year at the Prudential Center in Newark New Jersey on December 11th 2008.

After chatting with 'early bird' gym mates, Gee Culmer, Darren Fallen and Marianne "Golden Girl" Marston, about the fight Steve got down to business. After his normal warm-up, Steve went straight into a full work-out session.

Ever willing to pass on his knowledge and experience to fellow fighters, Steve then spent a little time advising British featherweight, Marianne Marston, on reflex bag techniques. After which he took a little time to talk about his return to training. "It feels real good, I am real excited to get back into the gym. The team made me take the three weeks off, it's good, I got a good amount of rest. But, now it's back to the schedule of dominating the cruiserweight division. I still believe that I'm the best cruiserweight in the world. I don't think any of them out there can beat me. I don't think I got beat on December 11th it's just the points on the knockdowns. But, you know, I'm going to prove in '09 that I am the greatest cruiserweight in the world."

When asked if he had any other fights in mind if the rematch with Adamek isn't forthcoming soon 'USS' Cunningham replied "I want to fight by the end of April, I'd love to fight in March or early April. We're working on that with Don King. But I pray in Jesus' name that we get the rematch right away. The buzz is hot, everybody wants to see a rematch. It'll be money and Television will be there, so I'm excited. I'm just praying for the rematch man. If it doesn't come we've got other avenues to go. We'll go for all of them. I say in Jesus' name I will be the two time world champion in '09.

Steve 'USS' Cunningham is intent on getting back in the ring as soon as possible and whilst it's clear that Steve wants the rematch more than anything else and we can only hope that Tomasz Adamek's management and promotional team agree to one soon, but if it is not to be Steve is determined to get fighting and start shaking up the cruiserweight division as early as possible in 2009.

Boxing fans deserve the opportunity of watching another scintillating battle between the two best cruiserweights in the world, if you agree go to www.wewantarematch.com and sign the petition.
